Sheamus Discusses His Match with Daniel Bryan and The Rock vs. Cena, Triple H Says There’s a “Weird Line of Reality That Isn’t Crossed” with WWE, More News

March 27, 2012   ·   0 Comments

– Sheamus spoke with HollywoodLife.com to promote WrestleMania 28 and picked John Cena to defeat The Rock:

“Its always controversial to pick the winner and a hard thing to do but I honestly think that John Cena is going to come up the winner on April 1st. Both of them are icons, both are legends, both have achieved so much. Cena is here night and day and I think that will take its toll on The Rock who has been back for one match. But Cena is the one without the ring rust and the one who I think will win at WrestleMania.”

Sheamus also discussed his World Heavyweight Title match against Daniel Bryan:

“For two up and coming superstars, we are looking to steal the show! We are hungry and we have spent a lot of time getting to where we are today. Whether it was on the independent scene where we scratched and clawed, we want to be where John Cena and The Rock are, we want to be where The Undertaker and Triple H are, so you are looking at two guys who really want to go out there and steal the show!”

– The Miami Herald has a new article up looking at the entertainment side to WrestleMania 28. Here are some quotes from Triple H:

“We’re a unique business. If I go on the Jay Leno show, I stay in character. He wants to interview Triple H, not Paul Levesque who plays Triple H. There’s a weird line of reality that isn’t crossed.”

“I know it’s confusing to the fans sometimes. Guys get fired or quit on-stage, and people aren’t sure whether it’s real or not. The best example of that, I think, was when we had Vince McMahon killed in a car bomb. Donald Trump, who’s a big WWE fan and a friend of Vince, called and said, ‘I know it’s probably just part of the story… but could you just tell me if Vince is OK?’ We’re like the last magicians: Is it real? Or Unreal? Nobody knows.”

“When you look at the real world, a lot of people feel that way about their jobs. They’re thinking, ‘this is a terrible place to work, my boss is an idiot, I don’t want to work there anymore.’ But they can’t go into the office and hit their boss over the head with a GPS, which is what [WWE wrestler] Stone Cold Steve Austin did to McMahon. For blue-collar people disgruntled with their lives, it’s a great fantasy.”

WWE confirmed over the weekend via press release that they have partnered with Anchor Bay Films to co-distribute action thriller The Day, which stars Shawn Ashmore, Dominic Monaghan, Shannyn Sossamon and Ashley Bell. WWE Studios President Michael Luisi said:

“With the incredible audience reaction it saw at Toronto (Film Festival), we knew that The Day would be a great addition to our brand. By combining the marketing power of our television, digital/social media and print assets with Anchor Bay’s tremendous distribution capabilities and successful track record, we look forward to bringing this film to a broad audience.”

– Jerry Lawler returned to the ring at Sunday night’s SmackDown live event in Nashville, Tennessee. He defeated Michael Cole in a Street Fight. The match saw interference from Camacho, Hunico and finally The Great Khali.

– Country music stars Trace Adkins and Randy Houser were in attendance for Sunday’s SmackDown live event in Nashville, Tennessee.

– Former WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus spoke with The Miami Herald about acting, WrestleMania and more this past week. Trish revealed that currently she has no plans to attend the big event in Miami next Sunday. Here are some highlights from the in-depth interview:

Edge’s Hall of Fame induction and herself going in:
“I’m so proud of him. I think Adam does deserve it. I think it’s very fitting the way his career came to an end. This is just an amazing exclamation point for that. For me, of course, it was like winning the women’s championship. I went into the business hoping to become the best women’s wrestler ever and winning the women’s championship was the ultimate goal. As I wrapped up my career the ultimate goal was to leave a legacy and be remembered for everything I did. So a WWE Hall of Fame induction is something that would be a way of recognizing that. One could only hope.”

A second season of Tough Enough:
“Absolutely zero word. I think there is a focus on the launch of the WWE Network, and that is a huge undertaking. I think once there is a clear idea on individual programming, I think that is when we will get a clear idea if or when there would be a season two. It’s a timing thing. I had a great time doing it. When they called me, I happened to be available. So if I’m available, and they have me back, of course I would entertain it.”

The Rock vs. John Cena:
“It’s hard for me to answer that question because I can answer as a fan or a booker. To be honest, after watching in the past weeks, I’m not sure what they are going to do. Vince is sneaky. The minute you think he is going to go this way, there is a swerve on you. It was like my WrestleMania with [Chris] Jericho. I thought we were going walk away as this new babyface couple until I got there that day when I found out I was about to have my heel turn. I’m telling you eight months of storyline leading up to me and Jericho being the big babyface couple who were going to be this sarcastic. corky, babyface couple that we really haven’t seen before. We were really excited about it. Vince brought us into a room and said, ‘You know, I have this idea.’ Nobody knew what to think. His instinct was super dead on. It really took my career in a whole different direction, which was great. Vince has that way of dealing it out. I’m just interested and going in not know what is going to happen. I’m feeling it is going to be as iconic as the Hulk Hogan/Rock match at WrestleMania 18 with that same energy in the building. I’m excited to see that.”

How she would have booked Divas at WrestleMania 28:
“If I was booking it, I would have had Kharma and Beth run strong leading up to ‘Mania. I think that would be an epic match. I really do. I would love to see those two go. It’s funny how Twitter can give you a real pulse about what the fans are thinking. Initially, people were telling me that Beth and I would be amazing. Then of course Kharma came back at the Royal Rumble and people said Kharma and I would be amazing. Now, with the Eve storyline, they are saying Eve and I would be amazing. So it’s interesting to see the minute there is a highlight on TV I get that. Kharma coming back was an exciting moment because they saw her and Beth as two characters that can really see go.”
